DETROIT, USA — Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) office of field operations intercepted more than a ton of marijuana at the Fort Street Cargo Facility, May 11.
An x-ray scan of an inbound tractor-trailer and subsequent physical inspection conducted by officers and a K-9 team revealed 2,175 pounds of marijuana concealed within boxes manifested as foam pool toys.
The illicit cargo was seized along with the trailer.
“This seizure underscores CBP’s long-standing commitment to the border security mission,” said Port Director Devin Chamberlain. “The men and women of CBP continue to work diligently to keep our Nation and our communities safe.”
